Upcoming workshops and exhibitions - Hamilton House, Stokes Croft

I've been busy choosing new frames, printing and framing and organising workshops and making new work for a Pop-Up shop (in Hamilton House, open for the month of June).
My next exhibition is on for only a week in the heart of Bristol, Stokes Croft. I will be exhibiting my prints from India as well as a few other pieces in the gallery of Hamilton House, next to The Canteen, 24th-30th May. 

I'll be setting up this Friday or Saturday and quite likely I'll be working in the gallery space on Saturday doing some printmaking so you can pop in to see how its all done and with a small donation come away with your very own hand printed greetings card or print. 

Also a date for your diaries here, June 14th. The artists studios of Hamilton House are opened up to the public, so you can see behind the scenes where beautiful and amazing things are created and chat to some of the artists. I will be doing another drop in workshop here for just £5 (suggested donation).

There's loads of other workshops going on as well, for really cheap or free!

Also here's a lovely testimonial from Fiona who works with a great organisation called Imayla and hired me as a freelance workshop leader, to facilitate a printmaking workshop with people with mental health disorders and their families. Here's what she said, 

'Sophie is a very skilled and creative arts practitioner, it was very easy to plan our activity with her and she has a gentle and encouraging approach to participants some of whom where quite nervous about what they were being offered - she's a good find and we'd definitely use her again'
